i want to knit a complicated sweater.
I want to build a blanket fort, and read a book inside with a flashlight.
I want to take one picture each day for an entire year.
I want to rip out every page of a book I hated and use those pages to make confetti. I will use the confetti to cheer up people who seem like they are having a bad day.
I want to ride an elephant.
I want to interview strangers from my neighborhood and ask them questions about their day, and then submit the interviews as editorials to the local newspaper.
I want to tape record old people singing.
I want to go canoeing, all by myself and eat sandwiches on the boat.
I want to leave made-up notes in public places.
I want to wear the aforementioned complicated sweater and hope someone notices me.

8/31/10: the cable is ‘sort of’ broken; the lack of vapid reality television has forced me to knit a rug out of potholder loops.
9/1/10: one day project!!!!! i am elated.
my couch is covered in furry little bits of fluff.
9/2/10: i’m going to put tape on the cats feet; they’ll work like tiny lint brushes.
i can’t afford a roomba.

learning to love you more.
(the next time you have an argument, write down what you and the other person said to each other. Write it in script form,... Try to be really accurate, capturing the real words that were used... the argument need not be long or dramatic, it can be brief and seemingly petty. most important thing is that it be an accurate record of the exchange.)

when esther releases her clothes into the wind, it seems to symbolize an emancipation from inhibition. this reticence defines her 'insanity'.is it really insane to free yourself from the restraints of 'polite society'?

frogged the first attempt:
addi natura’s were a horrible choice, but i was working with what i had. the yarn would not move and kept getting stuck on the join. i remembered reading somewhere to put mohair in the freezer. nothing happened. i should have known better.
knit pick’s nickel plated are working perfectly! the project seemed quick and effortless and but has become quite an achilles heel. i look at the half finished scarf, packed up in it's gallon sized ziploc bag, and cringe. i don't know where this feeling has come from, but i intend to work through it. when did i become such a masochist?
should i cast on a sock to free myself the monotony of this mohair tunnel???
midnight purls has sent me a giant bag of spinning things. maybe i should play with those for a while.
